ACT Gov’t Seeks Urgent Advice regarding Aussie Junk

By realitycheck - 13 June 2009 45

As reported on the news last night the ACT Government is seeking Urgent Advice after discovering Aussie Junk Pty Ltd has an application filed for winding up the Company with ASIC.

I searched ASIC & the net myself & discovered a Public Notice Announcement which reads

    “A proceeding for the winding up of AUSSIE JUNK PTY LTD A.C.N. ### ### ### was commenced by the Plaintiff, DEPUTY COMMISSIONER OF TAXATION, on 19 May 2009″

So it seems the ATO is also owed money.

Don’t look now but there’s queue forming!!

What’s Your opinion?

You think that you know it all Jamie Boy but the truth is that you no nothing at all about Aussie Junk, you are the one who is clutching at straws. Maybe you should have been a reporter, instead of a trolley pusher.
The reason this country is in dept is because of scum like you. Get a job and stop living off the tax payers.
Maybe you should pay your tax from all your market sales and ebay sales.You might be next.

In reguards to the winding up of Aussie Junk Pty Ltd, it is a procedure that the ATO go through when adopting a new payment plan!

What a load of rubbish – The ATO has obviously issued a Creditors Statutory Demand for unpaid taxes.This has been ignored and then the ATO has filed an application to wind up the company.They had 21 days from the 19th May to pay the bill or be declared insolvent.

I’m fairly certain the Workplace Ombudsman would not spend 12 months investigating Aussie Junk to then issue a media release full of lies and innuendo.
The WO media statement says 3 employees were unlawfully terminated, I am certain they know more about the case than you do.

But luckily it doesn’t require spelling at a 9 year old level.

Mortal enemies of the Summers brothers and apparently Woolies trolley boys.

Who the flap are the “winters brothers”?

As for the unlawful dismissal hearing the winters brothers had 10 pages of allergations but no evidence to back it. All allegations were unfounded and dismissed. I Think that the winters should go back to woolworths where they once worked, Working a tip shop is not always a clean job. The job reguires understanding of the recycing buisness aswell as good customer relations.
The winters Were not only wanted out by Aussie Junk but also the Community.
They had a poor understanding of the buisness and all aspects to do with it including customer relations.
In my eye and alot of the publics.
Aussie Junk is here to stay. I believe it will take alot more then some ex discrunteld employees with a chip on their shoulders to bring them down.
It takes to sides to a story and the winters have had so much to say lets here Aussie Junks side. In closing they have been good to me in the past so lets all get together and here what the public has to say about this small buisness and let us know your expierance with Aussie Junk .
Let us all help the envioroment and Support Aussie Junk

I think by owing staff nearly $300,000 in unpaid wages you can safely say Aussie Junk had a bit of a racket going also.
I do understand your point about Revolve.
I think it is time for an overhaul and new player to come into the game.

Very true. Some of the Revolve pricing was laughable. And they wondered why they couldn’t shift their stuff.

I-filed 5:12 pm 13 Jun 09

Revolve charged OUTRAGEOUS prices, and was a corrupt little outfit, a real racket. At least Aussie Junk was cheap.

VYBerlinaV8_the_one_ 5:05 pm 13 Jun 09

Another Stanhope cock-up.

It wasn’t THAT exciting, surely.

sepi 4:32 pm 13 Jun 09

Aussie Junk won the tender for being cheap. Revolves work in providing jobs for the disadvataged counted for nothing (nor the fact that they built up the business from nothing).

They should give it back to Revolve.

I wonder if Revolve will get invited to return to the previous site?

54-11 3:44 pm 13 Jun 09

This is after the ACT govt shafted the popular Revolve and took on an interstate contractor. Another Stanhope cock-up.

Seems the ACT Gov’t is joining a few of these queues lately – Rhodium, Summernats, Aussie Junk, next?
